Default Inserting Pictures Into Titler And Maintaining Orig Shape

Probably a better way I'd love to learn. I am trying to put an image into the titler. My (guessed at) workflow has been to insert a picture, but the software has me draw a box on the screen which it then fills with my target picture.. But the picture is squished to fit into the drawn box. Is there a way to import a picture into titler and have the picture maintain its original format? Many thanks.

Check to see if the 'Fix Aspect Ratio' tickbox is checked. This is under the Transform Header within the Image Properties panel.

If it is, uncheck it(You can do this with the Fix Aspect tickbox checked as well).

Draw the rectangle to roughly the shape needed for the picture being used. Then import it through the file button.

Once the image is on screen, you can use it as is or click the Original size button to get the true look of the image.

Whether you choose to have the Aspect tickbox on through the process or just now activating it, this will lock in the aspect ratio of the image when you size the original. The video shows it unchecked at the beginning.

Grab one of the 4 corner squares and drag the corner to the size that you need.

Finally, place the image where you need it.

Why do you want to put a picture into the titler? Did you want to place a picture above a video track ?

You can just do that by placing the picture on a video track above the video and then using layouter to manipulate to the scale or position that you want. Even then apply a chroma key for fancy effects of the video showing through the picture.

Thanks for that Jerry...

The reason to insert in Titler... The picture placed underneath some text, and is wiping on behind a purple bar that moves across the screen. If the pic and title are on one page, I only have to set the reveal up in Layouter one time... And if it recurs multiple times, I just copy and paste the items and change the text accordingly..

You can still do this "one layouter" approach with them on seperate layers by placing them on another timeline and nesting that into your main timeline, or by using the send to bin as sequence option which will automatically create a timeline of the selected clips (sorry not at my machine right not to confirm the actual terminology and steps)
